How to buy cheap, cheap Jewish clothing for the Holidays.
Here’s what you need to know.
I love the idea of buying cheap.
“A few years ago, I was thinking about what would be the best way to spend a few bucks, and I was like, ‘Well, I’d buy the cheapest clothes I can find.
It’ll be good,'” said Dovid Shalev, a senior fellow at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs at the Tel Aviv University.
He said that’s what happened in the past.
Shalevs daughter, Nadav, is currently shopping for a dress that will be on sale at her local thrift store.
“I’m trying to find the most affordable clothes that I can afford,” he said.
“You can get a few clothes for the price of a single bag of groceries,” said Shaleves father, Yair.
“There are so many options out there, you can’t pick the ones that you need.”
For example, a dress with a neckline and a skirt would be $20 at a thrift, while a dress without a neck line would be about $10.
The most expensive of the four options, however, would be a skirt, which would be over $70 at a store like the Yavne, Shalevc said.
A dress with sleeves and a bust, on the other hand, would cost about $40 at the Yapim store.
Shales mother, Zvi, also has an idea of how she might spend the money she saved on her dress: “I would get a coat.
It’s not cheap, but it’s going to be nice.”
Shaleves daughter, Shlomi, is shopping for clothing at the store.
A lot of women have an idea about how much they should spend on a dress.
Shlomim’s mother, Ruth, says she’s already spent $400 on a gown.
“It’s like an idea.
I want to dress my daughter in it, she likes it, so she’s buying it.
But we don’t have a lot of time,” Shloms father, Ziv, told the Post.
“She doesn’t like it.
So, I bought it.”
Shlomims mother, Shmuel, agrees.
Shmulim, she said, loves a dress, but doesn’t know how to wear it.
“I think I can wear it without a coat, but I can’t,” she said.
“It’s very comfortable.
I like the way it looks, but when it’s not working I think it’s too expensive.”
For some, the choice of a dress has more to do with how they feel about a dress than the quality of the garment itself.
“I feel like a girl should be able to wear whatever she wants,” said Zayad Shalom, who’s planning to wear a dress for her son, who is attending an all-boys Hebrew school.
“He is the youngest, so he can wear whatever he wants.”
Shalom’s father, Avraham, is also shopping for his daughter.
“We love dresses.
I think we can wear them without a jacket.
And the dresses I’ve seen are very affordable,” he told the paper.
“The thing is, you don’t know what you’re going to wear.”
Shall we get into the price comparison?
Shaloms mother, Elia, is a regular at the thrift stores.
She buys a lot for her daughter, but not all of it.
“A lot [of the clothes] are not worth anything,” she told the newspaper.
“They look really cheap, they are cheap, and they’re not good for a young girl.”
“I think the dress should be very simple, because it doesn’t need much,” Shmuli, Shilish and Shlomo’s mother told the Telesur news channel.
“And then, the accessories are very nice, they should be good, so we don.t need anything else.”
Shmuli and Shilosh are planning to get a dress in spring for their daughter.
“We don’t want her to wear something she doesn’t love,” Shalom said.
As the winter season approaches, it’s possible that a new wave of young women may be shopping for the best bargains in the store for the holidays.
Shalev said it’s impossible to know if the price will go down or not, but if it does, Shali’s parents hope their daughter will take it as a compliment.
